Homes will be fitted with solar panels, rainwater harvesting systems, and a combined heat and power unit. Any excess power generated will be sold back to the national grid, saving on energy and reducing costs for residents.
Environmentally friendly transport schemes will be paramount. Cycling will be encouraged with dedicated cycle lanes and paths, public transport networks with fast links to Oxford easily accessible, and an electric car club which will provide charging ports.
Residents will be able to pick fruit and veg from communal herb boxes or your garden fruit tree, and grow your own in the community allotments and orchards.
Forty per cent of the village will be green space, and wildlife will be encouraged to thrive, with a nature reserve, meadows, ponds and a country park. Bird boxes, beehives, bug hotels and meadow turf roofs, plus new tree and shrub planting, will sustain and attract a diverse range of species.
